Two Wonderful Shows: Painter Alex Katz Having Big Summer
“For the American painter Alex Katz (born 1927), this has been a remarkable summer. In June, the Colby College Museum of Art in Waterville, Me., organized a comprehensive exhibition of the artist’s diminutive collages (over 70 in number), most of them dating from the 1950’s; and in July, the Farnsworth Art Museum in Rockland, Me., mounted a spectacular show of some 20-odd examples of Mr. Katz’s large-scale paintings of Maine subjects, called–what else?–Alex Katz in Maine.”
